This Week in Art: January 19-23

Guess how many days of art we had this week because of MAP testing...
Did you say "one?"
Then you, my friend, are correct!
Each student had one day (albeit a double period) of art this week. Sheesh.
The good news is that we had the return of student bloggers! Enjoy.

"Since this week was MAP testing, we only have one day of double period art. But we finished up our papier-mâché letters today. Well, most of us. We're also working on our art challenges from day 15 or less."

"Today we worked with value scales using tints and shades. We had to use a color and make 2 tints and 2 shades, all on a value scale. The hardest part of this, for me, was making the change between values more gradual. I enjoyed working with tints and shades."

Camille's mug awaits firing!

"This week, we worked mainly on adding details to our clay projects. We learned how to balance the moisture level in our clay and how to use different tools to add texture. We are almost ready to fire them all."

In case you're wondering, these ARE my actual skates...!

P.E. classes are in the middle of their roller-skating unit right now,and I could not be more excited about it! On Monday afternoon I'll be skating with 6th grade classes, and on Friday, February 6th, I'll be spending the WHOLE DAY in P.E. roller-skating!

Thanks for another great week!
